    Is CPU usage maxed out? All results coming back valid?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Hey brandon, I checked my rigs and the times are between 12 and 15 hrs between them for the cep2 wu's. The i7 920 rig is right around 13 hrs for it.

    The last 5 CEP2's I ran were all done in 12.5 hours. Up from just a few weeks ago, 14+ hrs!

    Bumping the thread up to remind members that this is starting up next Thursday 9/19 (24:00GMT/8PM Eastern).

    Manofthem is assisting with a great game giveway* for active WCG Team TPU crunchers AND folders to kick off the Challenge!

    New members/inactive members have about a week to join up and get crunching to get in on the goods- don't delay!!! :toast:

    *keep a watch out for something special... that's the only hint you get :p


    **EDIT- the OP is a little bit out of synch- I'll clean it up with all of the latest info this evening **
    Bow, t_ski, laptop-hpc and 2 others say thanks.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Mine has been fluctuating in ppd for the last week or so. My average is 5.3k right now. 3.3 seems pretty close for yous under windows and at stock speed. Mine is running at 3.5 and it's under Linux.

    Does CEP2 only run one instance at a time? I mean, with other projects I can have 8 tasks running at once, but CEP2 is only one?

    You can set for more CEP2 wu's- you will need to adjust your profile on the WCG website. See below....

    To adjust the # of CEP2 jobs running:

    1- Log into your account on the WCG website:
    http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/viewLogin.do

    2- Select "Device Manager" and click the "Selected Profile" of the rig you want to make the adjustment on:
    [​IMG]

    3- Select "Custom Profile" from the list:
    [​IMG]

    4- Scroll down to bottom of the page and you will see the section where the adjustment is made:
    [​IMG]
    *adjust as necessary- I suggest starting with 2 or 4 and running at that setting for a day or two before deciding if you want to add any more. Note- I'm running 8 on one of my FX-8350's without issue and am trying 16 on the other as of today :)

    5- Save the profile and sign out of your WCG account.

    *Note- you may have to finish a few work units to allow room for another CEP2 project. Check after an hour or two to see if the additional CEP2 work units were added

    No problem :)

    If you have any trouble or questions you can post here or in the Team thread for assistance.


    Also a note for Team members:

    If anyone wants to donate a prize for the drawing or a game for the game giveaway you can PM me, Chicken Patty, or [Ion] (games you can PM manofthem directly if you like). Please note- we are running a larger challenge early next month so you can donate for either at your preference.

    Thanks in advance! :toast:

    I am warming up for the warm up. Things appear to be running smoothly. Also, to combat the constant writes to the drive, CEP2 seems to do this a lot (!), I set the, 'Tasks checkpoint to disk at most every' ... to 150 seconds, 2 and a half minutes. That slows down the writes for me. I tried more time but it would cause the CPU to fluctuate from 100% load.

    So, two and a half minutes between writes to disk versus 12 to 15 writes to disk each minute.
    Much better but, it can improve I think. I am going to try the cache at SuperSpeed (I think that is it) in a few days.

    I might also invest in a cooling pad, 180 F is not bad, here in the air conditioned Coffee Bar but, I have to prop it up to allow airflow most everywhere else. I saw one the other day I liked, whatever. Turns out I didn't pay a dime for my cooling solution.

    After just a few minutes....

    Ready, like Freddy (whoever Freddy is and despite whatever state of readiness he is in).

    I didn't have any DONE in this screenshot but, they are running, on average, about 12:10. Not bad, IMHO.

    Cool! :toast:

    5Ghz would likely put you at the top for FX-8350's at WCG and it would be awesome if you could do that. However, even with water cooling it would be tough to maintain a stable WCG cruncher 24/7 at that speed.... expect to run about 10-15% lower than prime stable clocks to be able to handle the WCG work ;)

    Will add you to the Team welcome thread as soon as we see results reported from you. :)
